Tiara and I decided to make a Thanksgiving dinner a while ago, so we started strumming up ideas and searching for ingredients and recipes... we weren't able to encounter a turkey (we didn't look in a butcher shop) so we cooked two chickens, and we also didn't have quite a few spices, so we substituted or did without... Another thing we weren't sure of was the temperatures to cook things at, but we somehow managed to have everything turn out just fine!!!! Amazing.. We cooked two chickens (like I said), mashed potatoes, gravy, cheesy vegetable dish, stuffing, jello with whipping cream (in place of cranberries because we couldn't find them!), peas, and a pumpkin pie! We invited Tiara's roommates (3 girls from Spain) and two japanese girls. Everyone really enjoyed the dinner, although some of Tiara's roommates were afraid because we were making some things they had never seen or eaten before (pumpkin pie, stuffing, mashed potatoes with russet potatoes instead of yellow ones)!
